How many times a week do you go and see your horse?

Just curious..now I know the lucky people here that keep their horses at their house will say everyday haha...but this is more directed to the people that board their horse.

How many times a week do you go up and see your horse...whether you ride or not.

Since my barn is like 10 minutes away luckily; I see her like every other day. I don't always ride every time, like some days I will just groom her for bonding.
But I see her a lot.

Well I'm one of those lucky people that have my babies at my house and see them everyday. But Last summer I was boarding them and I saw them twice a week.

LUCKY! I'd be in heaven if I could wake up every morning, look out a window and see my boy.

Yeah it's nice, but at the same time, I have to do all the chores. When you are boarding someone else does all that for you ;)

*coughs* that's not entirely true haha. I work off my board...well $150 of it. I clean my horses pasture, clean the stalls, the arena, the barn (both barns) and occasionally feed/water all the horses in the morning.

I don't mind doing the chores...I'm happy just to be around horses. If I could spend all day, just at the barn...not riding, but just working...I'd be happy. On Thursday I spent a good 2 hours just sitting in the pasture with a 5 year old Paint...sitting next to him and petting him. He even rested his head on my lap...it was soo cute haha

Usually 4-6 days a week. Sometimes to work, just run around, or groom/

I work at my barn so I'd say about 5-6 days a week. Sometimes less if the weather's bad. Sometimes more during the show season. I prefer not to see him every single day. Not that I would mind seeing him every day? But I'd rather not work every single day.

(don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my job but even with horses I need a day off!)
